The Sport and PE programme at Quinton House is an integral part of school life. We believe that leading a fit and active life is important for our school community’s well-being. Our aim is to provide sporting opportunities for all and for each young person to leave school with the intention of carrying on in participating in at least one sport.
The Sport and PE programme is led by Mr Tom Muskin, the school’s Director of Sport, who delivers and develops the very best sporting provision for all pupils, designed to cater for all tastes and abilities. We are incredibly fortunate that the specialised PE team teach all the way from Junior Reception to the Upper Sixth (Year 13). This ensures a smooth transition between Junior and Senior schools and allows the PE team to accurately track and assess all pupils. We also run fixtures from Year 3 to Year 13 fulfilling both away and home fixtures to reinforce a positive sporting culture throughout the school.
The PE curriculum starts at 2 years old and continues through to the Sixth form. Pupils develop skills, knowledge and understanding of a variety of different sports as well as health and fitness in their PE lessons. From Year 3 onwards, Games is added to the curriculum and the school’s focus sports are rugby, football and cricket (for boys), netball, hockey and rounders (for girls). The school plays regular fixtures and tournaments with other schools in these sports. Additional fixtures and competitive opportunities with other schools include athletics, cross-country and swimming.
We warmly encourage parents to support their children at our sports days in the Summer. We also host an annual sports awards evening in the Summer term, attended by a sporting guest speaker, to celebrate and recognise outstanding sporting achievement from the academic year. A range of awards and trophies are presented to those who have demonstrated sporting excellence.
